Kombo said the teams to watch in the day long competition were the team’s made up of himself, Charles Aburi, J.B.Onyambu and C. Ondieki whom will be seeking to bounce back after losing the finale slot last season on countback. Another team to watch is one led by Gurdit Verdee from Kericho Club, it has seasoned golfers who are currently playing good golf.
